With the help of Ondamed, we take a look at how patients are starting to broaden their research and consider the possibilities of Focused Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy.
Patients are frustrated and disappointed with the standard care solutions for their chronic symptoms. More times than less, a vast population of chronically ill patients not only sees no improvement but experiences further decline in their health. So, patients start to research, ask their doctors' intelligent questions and listen to answers and solutions with high expectations. They seek help outside their insurance’s network, often travelling far to find a physician who goes beyond the standard offering of care, giving more personal attention to the patient and offering treatment solutions including focused pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.
In the peer-reviewed literature, we find evidence that certain electromagnetic fields have an impact on the physiological process including melatonin secretion, nerve regeneration, cell growth, collagen production, DNA synthesis, cartilage and ligament growth, lymphocyte activation, and more. What’s consistent in these findings is that the frequencies need to be specific and not generic. The pulsed electromagnetic stimulation needs to be personalised to the patient just like we personalise pharmaceuticals or nutraceuticals.
Research shows that specific frequencies correlate with organs and organ systems while significantly impacting cells, tissue, and organs:
· 8 Hz and the heart;
· 1,217.7 Hz with the kidneys;
· 0.18 Hz with the liver;
· 406.37 Hz with the lungs;
· 26.90 Hz with the colon;
· 114.03 Hz with the stomach;
· 60.40 Hz with the spleen/pancreas.
These frequencies are available in different octaves just like on a tempered piano; the note C can be played on higher and lower octaves. Frequency is the term to explain repetition over a certain amount of time, and it is expressed in Hertz (Hz). These frequencies are based on the mathematical structure as already documented by Pythagoras 500 B.C., and upon which the basis of geometry is founded; this structure can be found in all elements of nature.
Again, the critical importance is the fine tuning of the therapeutic intervention to the patient’s needs. It’s just like when we use a remote control to get to channel four by pressing the number four on the remote or by pressing the button on our key to open our own car in a parking lot filled with 100s of cars. Only the correct signal will be received by the sensor and open the door of our own car. Our cell behaviour is quite similar. Our cells’ communication is based on electromagnetic signalling, and if we want to tap into the cellular communication pathways, we need to use the right electromagnetic fields. But how to know what is right or most suitable/therapeutic and if we knew which signal was right, where would we place the stimulation on the body?
One answer could be to adapt a novel approach developed by French neurologist Nogier in the 1970s. Using a method similar to a polygraph (lie detector), but much simpler, to get to the “truth” of the individual by overriding what we think we know and allowing the practitioner to tap into the response of the autonomic nervous system. A device provides stimulation by applying focused individual frequencies to the patient via an applicator, and the practitioner palpates at the radial artery to record frequencies whenever the pulse’s quality (not quantity) changes due to the focused pulsed electromagnetic field stimulation. This method allows fine tuning to the patient and selecting the frequencies most significant to the patient. Then the practitioner applies the selected frequencies and scans the body with a hand-held applicator to isolate areas on the body that may be inflamed, infected, diseased, or otherwise disturbed. Once these areas are found, special applicators are placed in the selected areas to stimulate cellular repair and regeneration including soft tissue, ligaments, tendons, joints, and bone.
This method, also referred to as emotional biofeedback is an absolutely brilliant way to get to the information proving to be most therapeutic to the individual in need of treatment. This biofeedback loop allows the practitioner to go beyond the limited “known” medical history searching for the causal fact or root of the patient’s health difficulties and disorders. Our emotions, including unresolved emotional trauma or shocks, reside as cellular memory and until confronted with such memory in a non-threatening way at a time when the patient is ready to revisit his or her dormant laying cellular memory, are often found to be the primary cause for their physiological disorder.
Even thought is energy. The thought is an organised field of energy composed of complex patterns of vibrations which consolidate information. Thoughts are events in the mind field that are available not only to the consciousness of the creator but also to other minds. Here is where a new thought leader comes in: Bruce Lipton, PhD, a cell biologist who revolutionises the DNA theory and helps give hope to physicians and patients alike with his ground-breaking concept that it is not the DNA that controls our biology. DNA is controlled by extracellular signals, including energetic messages such as thought and belief. Messages can be signalled by sophisticated instruments which gently and in a focused way tap into the communication pathways of our cells and help stimulate repair and regeneration on a cellular level.
